  • 1. DQS can do some data type checks with a rule, yes.

    You can also do RegEx pattern matching for fancier logic in a DQS Rule.

    I think you can do TSQL to do rudimentary pattern searching

    For example to search for a number digit in a column  

    SELECT * FROM TABLE WHERE Col1 LIKE '%[0123456789]%'

    2. Yes, you need to select the Data Quality Services and Data Quality Client at the time when the SQL SETUP is run to get the start menu icons.

    If it is a cluster, you cannot add features afterwards. If it is a standalone (not clustered I mean) you can add features by running the SQL 2012 setup again from the Add/Remove programs. 

    DQS is only in Enterprise, BI, and Developer editions however. If unsure of your version you can query SELECT @@VERSION in the SQL Database Engine to see, or look in management studio at the server name properties in the Object Explorer pane while connected to SQL Database Engine.

    Thanks, Jason
